Volunteers are critical to VIM Clinic’s mission of healing. Our dedicated team of volunteers are committed to helping others who are in need. Volunteers at VIM Clinic conduct themselves with dignity, courtesy, kindness and consideration while working in a professional manner.
We are always seeking Physicians, Dental Professionals, Mental Health Professionals, Nurses, Pharmacists and Lay (Administrative) Volunteers. Experience is not necessary or required for our volunteer positions. We will introduce you to VIM Clinic and train you! Many of our volunteers are retired, coming from many different careers and specialties.
The majority of our patients are employed and support the clinic in a variety of ways. For example:
Contact Nena Balzola, Office Manager and Patient Navigator at (843) 681.6612, ext. 225 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Snowbirds” are welcome at all times. Our busiest clinics are usually in the late fall and winter when most of Hilton Head Island’s part-time snowbirds arrive. Additionally, if you are a part-time resident but are in town even for a week, please give us a call if you can help one morning or afternoon while you are here. We are delighted to have you at any time! Just give us a call and let us know that you are available.
We have a need for your knowledge in other areas of the clinic such as our laboratory, triage service, outcomes management, and clinical quality management programs just to name a few.
Some of our physicians and dentists volunteer every week for at least a half-day. Some physicians can only volunteer one or two days a month. We are happy to work with you in any way that is convenient to your schedule.
